March Challenge

Hi everyone, it is the 5th of the month and time for the March Challenge over at Bizzy Becs.
The theme this month is "Anything Goes".

For my card I have used the stamp set 'Simple Sayings' by Darkroom Door, Memory Box Die 'Pippi Butterfly', Spellbinders Shapeabilities 'Fancy Framed Tags Two' and MFT Dies 'Plentiful Petals' and 'Layered Leaves'. 

I have gone with a colour scheme of Kraft, White, Pale Green and Lemon.  I love crisp clean finish of my card, especially the finished look of the layered leaves behind the flower.

  There are a terrific range of inks, dies and stamp sets available from Bizzy Becs online store here, so come and have a look around.



Thank you for visiting.
Carolyn.

Freestyle Collage

Hi everyone, I do not know about you but I seem to collect all sorts of bits and pieces 'just in case' I need it when I go to make my next card project.  I have accumulated so many treasures that I am getting over run by them.  So I was very excited when I actually found a definition for my style of card that I want to share with you today.  It is 'Freestyle Collage' which means unrelated elements in a collection.  So get all you bits and bobs out, your dies, stamps and inks and go for it.


For my card I have used Memory Box dies 'Hollyhock Stem' and 'Woven Circle' with the Darkroom Door Stamp Set 'Simple Sayings'.   The sentiment I cut out using the Spellbinders Shapeabilities 'Fancy Framed Tags Two'. 


Come and browse around Bizzy Bec's online store here.  Bec has a great range of stamps, dies and all things that you will need to make some great projects, or if you need to collect some more bits and pieces for 'just in case'.

Birthday Wishes ....

Hi everyone, can you believe January has been and gone already.  I have not had much time for card making lately, but would like to share with you a card I made using some of the great products available from Bizzy Becs online store.

On my card I have used Small Stitched Circle Stackables and Large Stitched Circle Stackables from Lawn Fawn, Leaf Filled Flourish from MFT, sentiment is from Bizzy Becs Digi Ticket Stubs - "A Little bit of Everything 3" and the image is a stamp from CC Designs.  Bec has a great range of stamps, dies and all things that you will need to make some great projects.  Come and browse around Bizzy Becs online store here.


I coloured the images with Copic Markers and added a few small flowers and some sequins.  All edges were inked with Vintage Photo Distress Ink to give a bit of a vintage feel.



The paper that I used on my card is from the new Kaisercraft "Betsy's Couture" pack.

Smile

Hi everyone, I have been playing with some goodies that I got from Santa and would like to share with you the card that I made.


On my card I have used Stitched Rounded Rectangles from MFT and the Lawn Fawn stamp set 'Blissful Botanicals" with the coordinating dies.  These are available from Bizzy Becs online store here.  I coloured the images with Copic Markers and added a little butterfly from a pack of Petaloo mini butterflies.  I have not done a lot of colouring lately with my Copic Markers, so it was good to get back into a project that was quite simple to colour and I love the finished effect.



Thank you for visiting.

December Challenge

Hi everyone, it is the 5th of the month and time for the December Challenge over at Bizzy Becs.
The theme this month is "Anything Goes".

I have gone for a simple technique for my card using the 'Bokeh' technique.  It is terrific fun splashing colour around on water colour paper and then inking over the top with a white craft ink with a circle template to give the out of focus finish.  I have used Darkroom Door stamp set 'Simple Sayings' on my card for the sentiment.
